      "The abstract concept of 'at your service' is expressed in visual terms by two stewards whose blue-and-brown silhouettes echo the colors of the text. Their caps are raised in an identical gesture releasing, in an impish graphic by-play, the word . . . 'everywhere' . . . the thoroughly British-looking traveler hurrying along the top of the words 'at your service' contributes to the poster's cheeriness" (Mouron p. 54). This is the rarer English version. Mouron pl. 43 (var), Brown & Reinhold p. 68 (var), Cassandre / Suntory 55 (var), Cassandre / Tokyo 66, Reclame 85 (var), Zagrodzki 266 (var).
